IATA stated the 35th IATA Ground Handling Conference (IGHC) will focus on fostering technology to improve safety, operational efficiency, and sustainability of air cargo shipments. The event will take place in Abu Dhabi between 16-18 May 2023 with Etihad Airways as the host airline. “Passenger and air cargo traffic are close to pre-pandemic levels. Efficient ground operations are a must to meet the scaling-up of demand. Unfortunately, the ground handling sector continues to face operational, recruitment and retention issues following the aviation downturn in history. The IGHC will explore how these can be overcome and how technology can be implemented to improve efficiency, increase compliance with global standards and improve safety and environmental performance,” said Monika Mejstrikova, IATA’s Director of Ground Operations.
